I knew the moment that decided to do a gift guide again this year that I wanted to have one day for myself. I wanted my own post to talk about our family and to ask you about yours.
I get little glimpses of you now and then when you leave me comments and you share a little bit about yourself, and I love it. I originally started this website to connect with strangers — not sure if that is healthy or not, don’t care.
I am planning an update of sorts and I would also love to hear from you. My site is my own, and it will ultimately reflect me, but I want to know what you do and do not like about my site. Any feedback will help me in my final design and might help me see something I am missing. Please know that these comments are really important to me, as are all of your comments, and I will be reading through all of them.
As for my family, we will be traveling home to Winnipeg to visit our family next month over the holidays and I am looking forward to it; we all are. We have a lot of traditions in both of our families that I can’t wait to experience again. Also, we will be Baptizing our youngest daughter while we are there, surrounded by our family. Our church has one night where they perform Baptisms for out of town visitors and we have everything ready to go.
Anyway, I’ve spent the last 11 days blogging about companies and products that I enjoy and that make my holidays ‘mine’. Now I want to hear about what makes your holidays ‘yours’.
